DStv Now is entertainment on the go – online, on your smartphone or tablet. Watch live TV, search for your favourite show on the DStv Guide, stream or download DStv Catch Up shows and movies, and even manage your DStv account. Available on selected packages – it’s your DStv to watch wherever you are, when you’re ready.
